David Robinson, national intermediary sales manager at Accord, said: “Many brokers are using social media, in particular Twitter, as a platform to share information with their fellow intermediaries, which is very encouraging.

“Brokers are adapting their business to reflect advancements in technology and the way they want to receive information from lenders is changing too. Therefore we believe it’s important to communicate with brokers via channels that best suit their needs.

“Taking on board feedback from intermediaries we have also launched a new-look website, which we hope brokers will find easy and simple to use. We’re always looking to improve the way we support brokers, so my message is please get in touch to let us know your thoughts, including via the @AccordMortgages Twitter account.”
